Steam Boat Casualty.--We have been shown letters from Detroit, which state that the Steam Boat Commodore Perry, when a few miles from that city, "collapsed her steam flue," by which four persons were killed, and two others so scalded it was not though they could recover. One person, also, from fright, leaped overboard and was drowned. No names were given, nor farther [sic] particulars, of any kind.


We cut the following from a New-York paper: "A new British steam-boat, called the Commodore Barrie, has been put in operation upon Lake Erie. She runs between Toronto, Rochester city and Kingston."

Lake Erie and Kingston! Look to your maps, gentlemen, and "learn your whereabout."
